While vacations are relaxing, packing for them can be stressful. Rouge style expert Tammy Palmer is here to help. Her three key travel pieces will keep you looking stylish, wherever you go.
1. THE TRUSTY TUNIC
A lightweight piece you can wear as a top, dress and cover-up is a must-have on your travel list. Tammy’s style tip: Wear it loose to the beach over a bikini, or belt it and pair it with flats for a casual city look.
2. THE VERSATILE TRENCH
Pack a cropped version. “[It’s] easier to travel with, can act like a blazer or a coat, and can transition from day to night,” says Tammy. Stick to a neutral hue in lightweight nylon or cotton — both are great fabrics for warm-weather climates.
3. THE ALL-WEATHER JEAN
This wardrobe staple is essential from the plane to the playa. Choose one in a light shade (it’s summer after all!) with nylon or Lycra for stretch and comfort. Tammy’s style tip: Pair it with a cotton tank and cardigan or vest for day, then swap with a floaty tank and glitzy sandal for evening.
AND WE CAN’T FORGET…
Essential items for your makeup bag: sunscreen is a must anywhere, as well as a camouflaging concealer (to disguise those late nights), an anti-aging exfoliator (for a smooth, bright complexion) and — to show off your flirty dresses — a reliable razor for a close shave.
